DS-ISMRM Gorter Award


Natalie Schön was awarded with the third place of the Gorter Award at this year's annual meeting of the German chapter of the ISMRM. The Gorter Award honours the currently best publications of young scientists in the field of magnetic resonance imaging in medicine or natural science.

Natalie Schön presented the publication of the topic "Respiration resolved body models in electromagnetic field simulations of a 7T transceiver body array". A major challenge of cardiac ultrahigh field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the impact of respiratory motion. Not only the image quality is limited by respiration, but also the spatial distribution of the specific absorption rate (SAR) and hence the safety relevant power limits are affected by respiratory motion. This cooperative work of PTB groups 8.14 and 8.11, Magdeburg University (OVGU) and the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research of the University of Minnesota has been published in Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
